Why I am involved in Connected

My cancer diagnosis was delivered without prior warning and following repeated false reassurances. Questions were met with ‘tailored’ truth or conflicting information. I had nothing to rely on.

Year after year, patients in the cancer support group I ran echoed my experiences. I became deeply involved in working alongside health professionals to improve cancer services. Good communication skills have an impact upon many healthcare issues, so I was really excited when the Connected programme was set up and delighted that my application to join the group was successful.
